Claude Dufresne's Biography



Claude Dufresne, CEO, axiVEND LLC

Dr. Dufresne, CEO of axiVEND, is a scientist and entrepreneur. Trained as an organic chemist, with degrees from McGill and the University of Alberta, he spent most of his career at Merck, gaining experience in the fields of laboratory automation, biochemistry, and pharmacology. For the last 8 years, he has transitioned to a role on the provider side of the Life Sciences community, bringing a unique blend of expertise to help identify solutions to the diagnostics industry. He has developed valuable know-how in the topics of microarrays, biosensors and biochips, and ultra-low volume, high precision liquid handling. From a commercial perspective, the founding principle of axiVEND is based on transparent communications, hence the company name from the Greek ‘axios’ (truthfulness).

Microfluidics devices are excellent at carrying out biochemical and chemical reactions at a reduced scale.  They are often the platform of choice for Point-of-Use test kits. There has been a trend towards minimally instrumented microfluidics, reducing external requirements for pumping systems, tube assemblies, etc… These new microfluidics devices can be produced by pre-loading reagents onto the chips.

There are a large number of methods, active and passive, for integrating and releasing dry and liquid reagents onto microfluidics devices.  This presentation will focus on the use of non-contact and contact low volume precision liquid dispensing to deposit a wide variety of reagents onto microfluidics components, during their manufacturing.  Technologies will cover picoliter, nanoliter, as well as pin tools for the transfer of biological molecules, nanoparticles, hydrogels, buffer components, into channels, reaction chambers, or microarray areas.
